    ''Two Brothers' is ... a long narrative beginning with the preliminaries of the Gallipoli campaign.... 'True Patriot', depicts trench life there, dominated by a corporal whose foolish insistence on strict formal discipline leads to his own disappearance. In ... 'Women Are Not Gentlemen', an enemy sniper, supposed to be a woman, is an invisible factor. The form of the work has its basis in ordinary blank verse, varied by freer usage. The whole is an imaginative transcription in everyday language of a historic phase of warfare having special Australian significance.' E. Morris Miller and Macartney, F.T., Australian Literature : A Bibliography to 1938 Extended to 1950. (1956) 328.
